Derby County suffers a severe blow before the key West Brom clash

Derby County stole a valuable point in the East Midlands derby against Nottingham Forest in Pride Park on Saturday, thanks to Chris Martin’s stop time equalizer.

Yet they will go to The Hawthorns to challenge West Brom on Wednesday without attacking Martyn Waghorn, who has been shown a red card for a rash challenge over forest midfielder Ryan Yates.

The referee did not hesitate to wield the red card and the running orders were delivered to Waghorn.

This means he will now make a three game ban, the first of those games against Albion next week.

The Baggies, who will drop to Hull City on The Hawthorns on Sunday, will have one day less to prepare for the meeting with the Rams, who are still looking for a play-off.

They had won their previous five games, alongside the break of the season, before the dramatic stalemate with bitter rival Forest, and will aim for another result against Slaven Bilic’s automatic promotion chasing Baggies.

Derby will also be without Tom Lawrence, who will serve the final game of his three-game ban on violent conduct, striker Jack Marriott, long-term absentee Krystian Bielik and former Albion lender Andre Wisdom.

Tom Huddlestone and Ikechi Anya both left the club at the end of their contracts.
